Coffee table books are in a category of their own because they serve a number of uses. Not only are they first and foremost a book containing words and pictures relating to subjects you’re interested in, but they add personality to your home and are just as much a certified decorative piece as say, a houseplant or a mirror.

If you’re the type to impress, it can even be something that says you’re a suave, sophisticated man who is just as capable of bringing some elegance into the home as he is dressing himself.

When it comes to accessorising your home with a few coffee table books, it’s not as simple as buying the first large hardback book you lay your eyes on. You’ll still want to put some thought into it.

But to help you out, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite coffee table books available right now that are guaranteed to bring pleasure to you and any ‘special guests’ who drop by for a cup of coffee.
